The Omni Group has a long history of offering upgrade pricing on new versions of existing apps, and while the App Store doesn’t support selective discounts, we originally planned on letting Mac App Store customers move to our own store to get those discounts. Unfortunately, we then discovered that we are not allowed to distribute updates through other channels to apps which were purchased from the App Store.
OmniGraffle 7, released October 2016, was the first in our lineup to be offered as a free download with one-time Standard and Pro In-App Purchases, followed by OmniPlan 3.6 in December 2016. This allows us to offer a free 14-day trial in the App Store for the first time ever, as well as a full range of discounted upgrade options for App Store owners for prior purchases. You can learn about our new free download model in this blog post.
The new Standard edition of OmniFocus is $39.99, with an in-app purchase option to activate Professional features like AppleScript and custom perspectives. All App Store customers who’ve purchased OmniFocus 1 will receive that in-app purchase for free, granting them the Pro feature set for the price of Standard (which happens to be half the price of OmniFocus 1). For step-by-step instructions on upgrading, please see the “Mac App Store” section of this article: Buying an Upgrade for OmniFocus 2 for Mac.
OmniGraffle 7 is a free download in the Mac App Store, with the Standard or Pro feature sets available via an In-App Purchase. Learn more about how to get your upgrade discount on this page: Buying an Upgrade for OmniGraffle 7 for Mac.
When the Mac App Store opened, we promised that OmniOutliner 4 would be a free upgrade for anyone purchasing version 3 from that point on. OmniOutliner 4 was released as a free update to Mac App Store customers.
OmniPlan 3.6 is now a free download in the Mac App Store, with the Standard or Pro feature sets available via an In-App Purchase. Learn more about how to get an upgrade discount on this page: Buying an Upgrade for OmniPlan 3 for Mac.
